The Sunday Scan: Field Burning

Before 2010, when the practice was finally banned, grass seed and cereal grain farmers in Oregon’s Willamette Valley burned their fields at the end of summer to clear weeds and combat erosion.

The Sunday Scan features images taken on film before 2003. They’ve been digitized using a Nikon Coolscan V ED scanner, and processed using Photoshop and Silverfast software.
